I am a fit 46-year-old and have had 3 caesarean sections. Having spent the best part of 10 years dieting and exercising to try to deal with the damage the c-sections had left me, in the hope I could improve my physical (without clothes) appearance myself. I began to realise I couldn’t. Following a recommendation, I went to see Lisa which has turned out one of the most positive life-changing experiences and the best decision I have ever made. My only regret was not doing this 10 years ago.
I had a breast augmentation (mentor micro-textured cohesive silicone gel) and tummy tuck at the same time, which also resulted in a repair of a ventral hernia and umbilical hernia. I hadn’t realised until after the surgery that my posture, digestive system, bowels, abdominal discomfort, distended stomach etc were so poor pre-surgery. Not only have all these things been corrected, but I also look and feel far better than I have ever done in my life. My body image and confidence has improved dramatically. I was a 34B and size 10 (and yes, you can still have significant excess skin and all these problems at this size whilst being physically fit too).
Lisa saw me regularly for several pre-op appointments to talk me through what the surgery would entail and to be sure that I was sure and understood what could be achieved and also what couldn’t. She made me feel that if I wanted to change my mind or if it wasn’t for me then I could walk away at any point. She didn’t rush me and let me make my decisions in my own time but with lots of support, guidance and factual information throughout.
The results are incredible. I am now size 8 wearing 32DD. My goal was to look normal and proportionate. Not only are the results better than I could ever have hoped, aesthetically Lisa ensures your new belly button and scarring are also perfect which includes strict post-operative care. Her attention to detail pre, during and post-surgery is exceptional. Lisa sets out to give a Rolls Royce service and she does this and more. She sees you many times before you leave the hospital, stays in touch by text and also sees you post-surgery for regular follow up appointments. In addition to this, you also have access to her PA Liana who is brilliant at absolutely everything, getting your 100’s of questions answered quickly! I trusted Lisa implicitly and her standard of care, bedside manner and gentle approach was perfect for me.
The only warning I would give is don’t go into this lightly. It is not a walk in the park and you don’t get the results I have got by popping in for a quick op and not listening to the advice. It is major surgery and for the results to be as perfect as mine you need to follow all the advice for post-surgery recovery. It is painful, even if you think you have a high pain threshold (I have), you may think you will be back in work in a week (I did think) but you won’t, you will need about 3 weeks before you can even begin to feel human. Go into to it with your eyes open, ask all the questions, accept it will take about 6 weeks out of your life before you start to feel normal, rest as you are told, don’t push it - then you will have the most magnificent result.
